Welcoming Sunday
The first Sunday of each month is committed to participation in the liturgy. All
Families attend Mass in lieu of class at the very least monthly to affirm the teachings of the Church which children are learning in their classes.  The 9:00 AM Sunday Mass has a rich history of being attended by and supported by families with young children. Homilies are geared to this population and whole families participate in the many liturgical ministries during the Mass.  We not only invite you to attend, we invite you to join us in the good works building up this community and contribute to the efforts of glorifying the Lord with wonderful worship experiences provided.

Catechist Volunteers - Making our Program Great!

We appreciate the commitment of those who are willing to share their time, talent and Faith with the youth.  Larger Catechist response means smaller class sizes which benefits both children and Catechist.  Please pray for guidance; open your heart to hear if this is your calling.   See this page to  Volunteer as a Catechist
